Publisher Description:

Latest poetry collection from poet, critic, theorist, and MacArthur fellow and Guggenheim Fellow, Fred Moten.

"...some ekphrastic evening, this'll be both criticism and poetry and failing that fall somewhere that seems like in between."

So writes poet, critic, theorist, and MacArthur fellow Fred Moten in his latest poetry collection PERENNIAL FASHION PRESENCE FALLING. Much like the poems found in The Feel Trio (Letter Machine 2014), which was a National Book Award finalist, and All That Beauty (Letter Machine, 2019), the poems here present Moten's "shaped prose" on the page and the dizzying brilliance of both polyphonies and paronomasia. Within this collection, the poems hold an innate quantum curiosity about the infinitude of the present and the ways in which one could observe the history of the future. Poems beget poems, overflowing and flowering, urging deeper etymological investigations. In perennial fashion presence falling, Moten approaches the sublime, relishing that intermediary space of microtonal thought.
